If you are in a relatively younger death metal band and the likes of Cannibal Corpses‘ Alex Webster is saying you are awesome, you would probably feel really, REALLY good about the work you have done.

As reported by Metal Injection, the Cannibal Corpse bassist spoke about a relatively young death metal band in the modern scene who he absolutely adores.

Who exactly is that act you may wonder? Well, it is none other than death metal thrashers Revocation!

Speaking about how much he enjoys Revocation, Alex Webster shares the following:

“One of the bands that’s been on a Metal Blade more recently that’s one of my favorites is Revocation. I really feel like those guys are a great example of a Metal Blade band in that they have roots in traditional kinds of metal.

“You can hear some traditional thrash and death metal in there, but they’re also very progressive and forward-thinking kinds of musicians. There’s a lot of things I hear them do that sounds rooted in tradition but they’re also pushing the envelope a little bit.”

Revocation is fucking awesome and it is so cool to hear Alex give the band a shout-out! What other modern metal bands could Alex be into?

Revocation formed in 2000 and at the time of this writing they have released eight studio albums; their most recent release is 2022’s Netherheaven (which is one of our favorite albums of this year).

In other news related to Revocation, starting next March, the band will be hitting the road and supporting the likes of Morbid Angel. You can find all the dates and locations associated with that tour below.
